The Colt M1911A1 is an old friend that I brought back from Vietnam in 1967. It saved my bacon!!!


The HP is a Mk III that I recently acqired. I removed the mag safety, installed a C&S safety, set the trigger pull to a crisp 5 Lbs, replaced the dorky plastic stocks with a vintage pair of "real" walnut stocks... It will eat anything that I feed it...

A really great pair of classic handguns! Thanks for the terrific photo. I'm sure you're really happy with them - I know I am with mine!

Thanks for sharing the pic. I can understand the attachment to a service pistol. I've never had to use either of my issued 4006s to save my life, but I sure am attached to them.

I'm in tears, 9 years ago I had one m1911a1 like yours the only diference was the color of the my gun, it was green/gray olive parker.

This gun I biught from an uncle and was very happy with it, but I was just married and my wife bought furniture by credit and had to sold that baby to pay the bill.

Over the eyars I tried to recover the gun but the owner never sold it.

Very nice guns and pic. With the special value attached to weapons you took to the dark side.

John M. Browning has left us two great designs, indeed (among a lot of others). We just shouldn't underrate the role of Dieudonn
